If you could offer a challenge to your child that would motivate them to spend more time reading, then reflecting and writing about what they read, while helping children in need, would you do it?
We have a few Peanuts lovers in our home who are so excited for The Peanuts Movie to come out. They’ve been watching the old Peanuts movies and our son has been reading Peanuts comics any chance he can get.
With all the Peanuts hype I knew it was time to put together a little Peanuts learning fun. And with Halloween approaching, what better book and movie to use than It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!
As part of our focus on gratitude, the children and I read The Blessings Jar: A Story About Being Thankful by Colleen Coble.
In this story, Punky Grace begins her day feeling very grumpy because things aren’t turning out the way she hoped they would.
Up until a couple of years ago I didn’t really understand the importance of memorizing Scripture. I had done it in the past but honestly, it was mostly because someone had asked me to and not because it was something I personally wanted to do. I figured that those verses were just an arm’s reach away so if I ever needed to refer to God’s Word I could just grab my trusty Bible and begin reading. Sounds reasonable enough, right?
Learning toys have a special way of making learning fun so that children don’t even realize that they are working at something. A quality learning toy can be used for years and in different capacities as a child grows. The best learning toys for preschoolers are good quality and versatile so that they can be used even as your child enters their elementary years.
